Showy Makes History on Debut

Showy makes History on Debut

Birmingham own “Showy” Reiss Taylor made history when he made his professional debut at the prestigious York Hall Bethnal Green east London 14/10/17. The 26 year old made history by becoming the smallest professional boxer in Britain, standing at 4 foot 11 and with only 3 days notice he fought a very tough opponent and from reports applied himself well. Unfortunately Showy didn’t get the result in this 4 round fight against Kaisy Khademi from Afghanistan.

I caught up with Showy and asked him how he thought his debut went. The pint size warrior told me “It was a very tough debut against a boxer called Kaisy Khademi who was from Afghanistan, he came forward like a train truck and I ended up going to war with him. At the end of the fight the left side of his face was split open. I don't feel like I will get a fight as hard as that again for a good while and I look forward to coming back and getting back to winning ways”.

Showy has informed me that the fight will be shown on channel 4 in the next few weeks.

Dexter Thoughts

I have been waiting a long time for Showy to make his debut and what a place to make your pro debut. With only 3 days notice he went down to the prestigious York Hall Bethnal Green east London. Showy didn’t get the result but made history as the smallest professional boxer in Britain. I was gutted that I missed his debut as I was already committed to a show in Walsall but look forward to seeing him in his next fight hopefully in Birmingham.
